Karma played the governing role in purification of souls’ atmans. In absence of karma life carried no meaning in cosmic system. The evolution of life in cosmic system was facilitated by karma. Unless life forms including human beings indulged in karma… life would never move ahead in cosmos. Just by remaining inert human beings achieved nothing in life. We had to indulge in karma… no matter what! Karma was primarily inbuilt into every form of life.
Whenever death of body occurred on mother earth… it was karma that facilitated movement of soul from one manifestation to another. The residual balance of present life becomes opening balance for next manifestation. The new manifestation by a soul atman was directly based on residual balance of karma of previous life. If the residual balance of karma demanded a soul atman manifesting form of a laborer in next life… one just could not be born a Prince!
Miracles in cosmic system did not exist. Religious followers who believed in miracles were an ignorant lot who never truly achieved anything in life. Life in cosmic system was never based on rhetoric. If we desired a better manifestation in next life… we must indulge in good karma… positive karma in present life. If we exist at number 47 on the karmic scale in present life… our attempt should be reaching number 48 in next life. At number hundred one reached stage of enlightenment! Becoming an enlightened one meant karma negating to zero forever!
For negating karma to zero, God Almighty ordained a long journey of 1.1 million manifestations in human form. Enlightenment truly is not gained that easily. If we truly desire reaching God in present life… we have to enact karma accordingly. Karma of human beings was directly related to ones thinking. Invocation of pure thoughts all the time is what pure celibacy is all about. Just by indulging in Bhagavad Gita we never achieved anything.
The contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita can only be understood by following path of absolute truthfulness. Unless we traveled path of truthfulness all the time… we just could not succeed in assimilating teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita. Karma not only played a vital role in our gaining enlightenment… it also meant cessation of life forever as human beings. As a human being it should be our goal of life to indulge in good karma… positive karma all the time!
Bhagavad Gita advocated indulging in karma nishkama karma way. As we were primarily a soul atman… a spirit… living consciousness… the fruits of karma performed by human beings always belonged to our inner self… our soul atman, the spirit within! When fruits of karma always belonged to our soul atman… why indulge in accumulating material riches as human beings… something that could never be carried to next world.
What gets carried to next life is Punya karma alone and everything else is left behind! In spite of this clear indication in teachings of Bhagavad Gita… human beings most of time indulged in accumulating material riches beyond requirements. Prime reason why travellers of spiritual path all the time failed in understanding precepts contained in Bhagavad Gita. As a human being we must put all our energies behind the only goal of life… negating karma to zero forever!
JRD Tata… the man of steel popularly called Jeh was a true Karma Yogi par excellence. It is an established belief of Tata Empire that nothing belonged to them ever. As per beliefs of Tata Empire… everything belonged to God Almighty and Tata were only custodians of everything that truly belonged to God Almighty. Tata have always acted as a true trustees… indulging in nishkama karma way of life as dictated in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism… prime reason why Indians believed in Tata blindfolded from generations to come.
